2015 in Review

Its been a good year. It has been a year with many challenges. It has been a year of tremendous growth. January - Mom goes in for a massive operation to remove a huge tumour. For 24 hours her life hung in the balance, but she pulled through the surgeon was confident he had removed all the cancer. I breathed a sigh of gratitude and relief.
February - Sad good byes to my students and friends at Silikamva High. felt really honoured to have been part of the Silikamva history. Moved on to St Joseph's Marist College. The months to come would be the worst work experience of my life. It would also be a grace journey and one in which I stand up for my principle's. A huge learning curve. March - Andre starts his new job. A huge risk a huge challenge as he buys into a partnership. One that will only see the rewards financially in a couple of years. What a joy to see my man so happy and motivated and fulfilled. A good move indeed. GRATEFUL for God's goodness.
April- I can't think of anything significant in this month other. Lots of Public holidays and preparing for Jason's 21st. Furiously scrapping uncaptured years. May - Jason turns 21! Awesome weekend with a full house of family from Johannesburg. A great time was had. So grateful for this young man's life.
June - July School holidays was a lovely time to relax, chill at home did lots of projects and just loved being home in the cold weather. August - my collegue and friend Bernie was fired. It was a month of shock as i watched events unfold... September - My favourite month of the year. My 25th wedding anniversary. My husband rocked my world giving me a new car. I love her. So grateful for God's provision a good husband, my best friend and awesome dad.
October - I resigned from St Joseph's and started my new position at Kronendal Primary. Jesse was made Head Boy for 2016. Aa very proud moment for Andre & I. A dream come true for Jesse.
November -
My friend Sally- Ann lost her son Daniel. It was a shock and once again a reality check on how fragile life is. December - Ashleigh graduates with honours. #fees must fall means graduation will only take place in June 2016. None the less she is signed with PWC for her articles. So grateful to God for the blessing of her bursary for the 5 years spent at UCT her hard work finally paying off and my daughter emerging as a butterfly and deciding to embrace independence and flying the nest in February of 2016. So proud of this beautiful young lady....
Such a lovely time with my mom in Cape Town the past 2 weeks. Amazing time at the Silikamva Christmas Party. So grateful for a year where I have know the grace and favour of God. I look forward to 2016 with all it is opening up for me. New challenges and dreams coming true. My heart is bursting ..... Jason passed 1st year at UCT and moves on to 2nd year Jesse heads into Matric Thank you to all who have made this year a beautiful journey for me I look forward with a heart full and bursting with excitement for 2016
